Education for Sustainable Development

Education, communication, and public awareness are essential elements in ensuring improvements in the quality of life of all people, eradication of poverty, reducing inequalities and promoting sustainable development.

Environmental education is key for respecting nature and for achieving international agendas, including the  Millennium Development Goals (MDGs); the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD); the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD); and the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (UNDESD, 2005-2014).
